    Awesome! I've been doing my local GSSF match the last four years with my G19. Trying to get under the 100 pts score, but I keep adding a +10 miss to my score. My worst score was 147-something. It's addictive. I may sit out next year and do more USPSA.

    I have been shooting Steel Challenge for about 4 years now using a 9mm XDM Open Gun. I want to try something different along with the steel shooting.

    I have a G31 357sig. I am about ready to start reloading for the sig, but for now I will use my 9mm wolf barrel. It looks like it will put me in the Unlimited class.

    I was wondering, are they hard to get a hold of on the phone? I need some info on the up coming match I want to shoot.

    What kind of info? Danny knows most of this stuff, and the rest of us occassionally fill in with other accurate information - and if it isn't accurate, Danny or someone will correct that, too. :)

    I got a hold of someone. I just wanted to ask what division I would be in shooting a G31 357sig with a 9mm aftermarket barrel.

    I haven't got around to reloading for the 357sig yet.

    Thanks!

    Since the match is only 50 rounds, use your factory barrel and .357Sig ammo.

    Most indoor matches offer only one category--STOCK. The aftermarket conversion barrel would place you in Unlimited Category.

    Hmmm... I'm not entirely certain that bansheex's match is indoors. Can't find a 10/29 on the Indoor League, but there is an Albany Oregon outdoor match on Oct 29-30. I'm guessing his 'local' club is the outdoor Oregon GSSF match venue. (In which case I'd still shoot Stock.)

    bansheex just tries to feed us as little info as possible to keep us guessing...

    Outdoors you have two choices:

    Shoot the stock G31 in any of the following categories--Amateur Civilian, Competition, Master Stock. You will be shooting against fellow amateurs in Am/Civ and Competition.

    Shoot with your aftermarket barrel in Masters/Unlimited, in which you will be competing against Masters and their full blown race guns.

    You cannot use an aftermarket barrel in stock categories. Either way you go, you will need about 150 rounds to be safe. Maximum round count is 107, minimum is 81.

    Sorry guys,

    the match is in Oregon @ Albany. I'm trying to keep cost down as much as possible. I reload and already have extra mags for the 9mm setup, and only 2 10 round for the 357sig ammo.

    My girlfriend will be using the glock for steel, hence the 9mm setup. The 357sig is not cost effective for that, at least until I can start reloading it. That will be soon, so I can change to Amateur Civilian class.

    Think they would let me shoot my XDM Open Race gun? j/k

    GSSF is the Glock Sport Shooting Foundation.

    Guess you'll be shooting Unlimited with the big dogs this time around...

    Just think about it reasonably and rationally like I do; close your eyes and click your heels together, wish upon a star, cross your fingers, dig out your rabbit's foot, and hope for a random win.

    Have fun. Let us know how it goes.

    Yea it will be fun to shoot something different. I love shooting steel challenge, so it should be somewhat familiar to me.

    I will give you guys a report.

    I shoot Steel (though we vary the rules slightly and aren't SCSA sanctioned). I consider that to be some of my best practice time for GSSF. Instead of shooting from surrender and drawing I shoot from low-ready on the practices leading up to a GSSF match.

    Butch considers Bullseye some of the best GSSF practice and I shoot that too, but consider Steel more like GSSF. I should listen to Butch though as he's Super Grand Master Poobah Gunny Challenge Winner (right Butch??) :)

    not sure if it's help you but you get a Glock .40 barrel and be GSSF legal for any stock division your pistol fit in. Note" you'd need to confirm a stock .40 barrel will fit in a .357. My guess is it will, but I don't know for sure.
